Supported by Colgate-Palmolive

The Cariology Group of IADR has established this new Award to promote the attendance at the annual IADR scientific meeting of dental, graduate and other students, as well as faculty, from all parts of the world who are working in the field of cariology, erosion and related subjects, and who are affiliated with institutions located in countries designated as lower middle income or below according to the World Bank classification.

Deadline:
The submission deadline coincides with the IADR abstract submission deadline for the General Session & Exhibition of the IADR, to be held annually.

Eligibility:

  1. Researchers in the field of caries, erosion or related subjects are welcome to apply for this award.
  2. Candidates must be affiliated with institutions located in countries designated as lower middle income or below according to the World Bank classification (http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups#Low_income).
  3. Candidates must submit an abstract for presentation at an IADR scientific meeting, selecting “oral presentation” as the preferred format, identifying Cariology Research as the scientific group to which the abstract should be submitted for review, and selecting this award under “Competitions” indicating they wish to be considered for the award.
  4. Candidates must be the presenting author.
  5. Candidates who have received this award in the past may not apply again.
  6. Candidates MUST be an IADR member and member of the IADR Cariology Research Group.

Award:
For each annual IADR scientific meeting, one award of US$2,500 will be made to the awardee as a contribution to costs of attending the meeting. The award will be announced at the business meeting of the Cariology Research group at each of these meetings.

Application Procedures:
All researchers, regardless of position (e.g. under-, post-graduate, post-doc, faculty etc.), from all parts of the world who are working in the field of cariology, erosion or related subjects, meeting the criteria outlined above, submitting an abstract for intended oral presentation at the annual IADR scientific meeting, identifying the Cariology scientific group as that which should review the submission, and indicating that they wish to be considered for the award, may be entered into the competition. The application should include:

  1. the submitted abstract
  2. a curriculum vitae
  3. a letter of recommendation from a fellow IADR member
  4. a two-page summary of the research to be presented
  5. a one-page description of the applicant’s present position and current research work.

All documents above should be grouped into one pdf file and e-mailed to Marcelle Nascimento at mnascimento@dental.ufl.edu.

Review and Selection Process:
Abstracts submitted for the Cariology Group Travel Award will be peer-reviewed by three members of the cariology scientific group with the appropriate expertise to evaluate the submissions. These reviewers will normally be appointed by the president of the CRG. Each submission will be evaluated for:

  1. Meeting the author eligibility criteria outlined above
  2. The relevance of the subject to the fields of cariology and erosion
  3. The innovativeness of the subject matter to the fields of cariology and erosion
  4. The clarity of the aims
  5. The appropriateness of the methodology
  6. An overall evaluation of the quality of the abstract

Abstracts will be scored and ranked independently by each of the reviewers. Where disagreement occurs, discussion among members of the executive will resolve any differences. The reviewers will agree to a final ranking of the top abstract.

The awardee will be notified two weeks before the pre-registration deadline.

Awardee responsibilities:

  1. To attend the general IADR meeting and Caries Research Group-related activities, including the annual business meeting where the awardee will be announced.
  2. To acknowledge in the study presentation (and possible future publications) the receipt of the Caries Research Group Travel Award.

CARIOLOGY RESEARCH GROUP SCIENCE AWARD


Title: “Cariology Research Group Science Award”


Purpose: The Cariology Research Group (CRG) of IADR has established the above award to promote the quality of science at the annual IADR scientific meeting of researchers working in the field of cariology, erosion and related subjects.

Eligibility:
1.         Research abstracts in the field of caries, erosion or related subjects are eligible for this award.
2.         The abstract must be submitted for presentation at the annual IADR scientific meeting. The authors must select the CRG as that group to which the abstract should be submitted for review, and identify that they wish to be considered for the award.

Applications: Abstract must be submitted for presentation at the annual IADR scientific meeting and have CRG selected for review. Additionally, the abstract must be identified for consideration for the award. All abstracts meeting the eligibility criteria outlined above may be entered into the competition.

Review and Selection Process: The review will be based on the submitted abstract. The review process will consist of two steps – a primary review by the assigned CRG Abstract Lead Reviewers, who will incorporate suggestions by the Abstract Reviewers, and a final review by the Award Committee.Abstracts submitted for the Cariology Research Group Science Award will be initially peer-reviewed by the Abstract Reviewers who will score them (according to the IADR Abstract rating scale) and make suggestions to the Lead Reviewers assigned to each of the six sections (Clinical and Epidemiological Studies; De-/Remineralization; Detection, Risk Assessment and others; Erosion; Fluoride and Ca-based Products; Microbiological Studies/Biofilm). Only abstracts rated the score ‘1-Exceptional’ by at least one Abstract Reviewer will be further considered. The Lead Reviewers will then select a maximum of five abstracts from their assigned section and forward these abstracts to the Award Committee. Members of the Award Committee will be chosen by the President of the CRG of IADR and will consist of a minimum of three and a maximum of five present and/or past members of the Executive Committee. The Award Committee will then select a maximum of three abstracts worthy of the Cariology Research Group Science Award. Due to potential bias and conflict of interest, abstracts authored by members of the Executive Committee are not eligible to apply for the award. The awardee(s) will be notified two weeks before the annual business meeting of the CRG. The Cariology Group of IADR reserves the right not to give any awards in the event no eligible entries are received or in case submissions are not of sufficient high standard as determined by the Award Committee.

Awardee Responsibilities: The presenting author of the awarded abstract is expected to attend the annual IADR scientific meeting and CRG-related activities, including the annual business meeting during which the award(s) will be announced.

Frequency: The Award will be offered on an annual basis.

Presentation of Prize: The successful candidate(s) will be named and the Award(s) presented at the Annual Meeting of the Cariology Research Group or at the associated social function.

Prize: A maximum of three awards, each consisting of US$500 and a certificate, will be presented to the winning research project/abstract(s). Although the award(s) will be given to the presenter, it is (they are) intended to recognize the research of the entire research team who contributed to the project being presented at the annual IADR scientific meeting.
